The Dance of the Seven Veils has delighted the imagination of popular society since the mid-20th century. Oscar Wilde's famous biblical play Salome helped to propel an oriental dance craze and generated countless imitations of the “Dance of the Seven Veils” by such famous dance artists as Maud Allan and the infamous Mata Hari!
Miramar will teach her version including tips on choosing music, wrapping up in 7 veils, theme ideas, plus special moves like
Wrapping and Unwrapping, It’s Ducky, Miramar’s Favorite Tent and more. Detailed written notes and YouTube support included.

Materials:  These sizes are estimates – I’m about 5’4” and about 138 lbs. If you are smaller or larger you may either need shorter and/or longer veils.  It is fine to use the veils that you normally work with.
A.  2 rectangular hip accent scarves, approx.  36 in. x 2 ¼ yds. or could be smaller – these will be worn on the hips.
B. 2 Circular Veils, approx. 40 in. x 2 ¾-3 yds.  You could substitute with straight veils.
